Backstreet Boys, Steely Dan, Cold War Kids and More Top Show Announcements
You know, this seldom happens, but I can say without a doubt that I have every single one of these artists in my iPod. Maybe I'll make it into a playlist. This'd be a good playlist, right?
Either way, here are your top show announcements this week, and if you're like me, you're flabbergasted by the fact that THE BACKSTREET BOYS ARE COMING!
Don't hate. Just scroll down. You'll probably find something you like.
Backstreet Boys, DJ Pauly D
Friday, August 30, at Verizon Theatre, $36.50-$99.50
On top of embarking on their first tour in more than a decade, all five of the original members of Backstreet Boys will be dropping a new album -- yes you heard right -- called In A World Like This, on July 30. Whaaaat?
Friday, May 24, at Levitt Pavilion, Free
Who doesn't like a free stuff? If it isn't storming this weekend, head to Arlington for a special "Under the Stars" show with Jaffe.
LL Cool J, Ice Cube, Public Enemy, De La Soul, DJ Chuck Chillout
Monday, July 1, at Verizon Theatre, $39.50-$59.50
It's been 25 years since LL Cool J arrived to the rap scene, but 2013 will see him off to tour -- this time with rapper-turned-actor Ice Cube, Public Enemy and De La Soul -- after releasing his 13th album, Exit 13, which apparently mixes a combo of in-your-face aggression with LL's classic sex jams.
